Easy Biscuits – February 7, 2014

I had dinner with my friend Virginia the other night and she told me about this crazy idea – biscuits made with three ingredients.  And, even more interesting, one of these ingredients is mayonnaise.  Well, it just so happened we had three jars of mayo in the fridge from various events.  And, although we aren’t big biscuit eaters, I thought the idea of using up some mayo and having a special Sunday breakfast sounded great.

These biscuits do require that you have self rising flour (or you have to supplement your all-purpose flour making it more than three ingredients).  You can also do as I did and replace the milk with buttermilk.  The dough is very sticky and more a drop biscuit than something you can roll out, but they were very easy and quite delicious.  They also kept in the fridge and warmed well in the toaster through the week with butter and jam.

Three Ingredient Biscuits

2 c. self-rising flour
6 T. mayo
1 c. milk

Mix all ingredients just until blended.  Heat an iron skillet in oven at 400 degrees.  Remove and drop biscuits on skillet (makes about seven or eight).  Cook approximately 20 minutes until lightly browned.

Well, it just so happens that after I made these for breakfast, we listened to Natalie Dupree on The Splendid Table share her recipe for TWO INGEDIENT biscuits.  These don’t use up any mayo, but help if you have extra whipping cream.  They also require you to fold them out, but they were really delicious!!!!

Two Ingredient Biscuits

2 ¼ c. self-rising flour
1 ¼ c. heavy cream
Preheat oven to 450 degrees and spray iron skillet with oil.  Whisk 2 c. flour in bowl and make well in center.  Slowly add 1 c. cream mixing until just together.  Use flour to flour surface and drop dough on top.  Flour dough and fold in half.  Flour again and fold again.  Add more flour or cream as needed.  Press dough out ½ - ¾ inch thick and cut biscuits.  Place in skillet touching each other.  Bake 10-14 minutes on top rack, rotating if needed.

I don’t know how it is where you are this weekend, but we have more cold and snow – the perfect weather to stay at home with biscuits, ham or jam.  Enjoy and have a great weekend
